Note Taking Apps: 3 Best Apps for Taking Notes Online
Keep Your Thoughts Organized and Your Paper Consumption Minimal
In an effort to stop using so much paper, we wanted to share with you some of the best online note taking apps we have found. From the very sophisticated Evernote to the very simple Simplenote, here are 3 apps you can begin using that will keep your thoughts organized and your paper consumption minimal.
One of our favorite note taking tools, Evernote is one workspace that lives across your phone, tablet, and computer. You can create lists, write notes, clip articles, snap photos and seamlessly share not only between your devices but with other people.
Favorite Task We Manage: Highlighting and adding notes to PDFs just like we would do if we printed out a hard copy.
Remember those notebooks you had in school—one for each subject? Microsoft OneNote is like having digital versions of each notebook which is great if you are working on multiple projects. In order to share across devices, each device must have Microsoft Office installed.
Favorite Task We Manage: You can send emails to a OneNote email address and it will add them to a specified notebook.
If you really don’t need to insert images or make notes on PDFs, check out Simplenote. Just like the name suggests its simple—you simply write down your thoughts and it’s done. As your collection of notes grows, you can search them and keep them organized via tags and pins. And, just like the other apps, you can share notes with other people.
Favorite Task We Manage: Creating a one-word search and seeing all of our notes that contain that word pop up onto our screen.
